Love the big rooms and great view. Can't beat being right on the lake. The only downside is the water pressure and water temperature. Otherwise as this is just the start of the season we were very pleased and will return.

The room was very spacious and that was the reason we stayed here again. The front desk was not very pleasant and was rather rude when we asked about the restaurant still being closed. We totally understood that with the health conditions that the restaurant would be closed. It was a conversation piece and curiosity since they were redoing it last time we stayed. We loved the balcony, and the view, but was disappointed that we had to clean the chairs and that it did not look as if it had been cleaned in a while. Dead bugs and spider webs were present. It does take them awhile to housekeep so don't be surprised if you are out for the day and they haven't gotten to your room yet. Once done it was really good, and the housekeeping staff was very pleasant. Even though it is a non smoking hotel, don't be surprised if people on the balconies are smoking, not just tobacco.

We do apologize your stay was not as enjoyable as we would like everyone's stay to be. During these times we are overwhelmed with so many different aspects of the industry and we are doing all we can to make sure everyone has a pleasant experience. We have removed all advertising for a breakfast as we do not know when we will be able to offer such again and can not apologize enough that someone was less then cordial when explaining we can not offer such again. Hopefully next year we will be able to offer a better variety of grab and go breakfast bag if our regular is not yet permitted. Safe travels.

I liked the location of the property and the view from the balcony. The property was not kept very clean and it didn’t look very updated or maintained. Overall disappointing experience and I was up charged to have a clean room available at check-in, otherwise the room I reserved would not be available for an additional 3 hours. Would not recommend.

The location was perfect. The balconies were a fantastic place to watch the sunrise and see the Mackinaw Bridge. In need of maintenance and housekeeping.
